A. I've played it a bit recently, and didn't notice any serious bugs.
B. It's free. WoW costs a bunch of money to play.

There are certain… problems, admittedly. But as Eth pointed out, the fact that it is free entails some leeway for inconsistencies. Oh, and shiny graphics, those give flexibility too. Strangely shiny, shiny graphics.

It wasn't free when I played it, so in essence I was paying for a bunch of crap :P

So, I've had a sudden urge to play the Elder Scrolls 4 : Oblivion. And so, In 2 days I've managed to buy the skingrad mansion, level my dark elf mage to level 26 and fix the graphical problem that caused the shadow filtering on bushes to lag my computer :P-smf

I played my first party game of D&D Online last night for about two hours. I played with people I knew IRL, gaming buddies and people from work. It was a bit disorganized and it was too easy, but it was pretty fun. I guess I'll do it again next week. Unfortunately, my Hot Elf Chick ended up wearing a really stupid-looking staw hat by the end.

LBA2 is a bit like LBA1 I guess... Not quite the same magic, but interesting nonetheless.

I didn't like some puzzles in LBA2, as they had no logic to them, mostly trial and error... lots of error...
The LBA1 puzzles were much better.
